LGBT Family Ministry

Catholic Diocese of Cleveland

Our Mission Statement

The Body of Christ in the Diocese of Cleveland is called to reverence each person as a unique reflection of God's presence in our midst. We commit ourselves to become a community of care, support, formation, reconciliation and witness to justice with and among gay and lesbian persons, their parents, family members, and all who minister in and with this community.


The Gay and Lesbian Family Ministry of the Diocese of Cleveland traces its beginnings to a series of conversations that began in 1997.
